Abstract

The most common clinical causes of metallic foreign body in the breast are surgical clips, pieces of guide-wire and gunshot wounds. Metallic foreign bodies can lead to local breast pain, abscesses, pneumothorax after granulomas or migration, and cardiac tamponade. Mammotome biopsy, fluoroscopy, guide-wire biopsy and radio-guided occult lesion localization (ROLL) are the standard techniques applied for surgical excision of non-palpable breast lesions. This article presents the second case in the literature undergoing the ROLL technique for the removal of a metallic foreign body from the breast.
